Both of those metals are excellent algaecides. Most commercial bottled algaecides are either copper- or silver-based. I would imagine that a copper or silver ion generator would be useful. Not sure how cost-effective they'd be.

What would happen if a copper coin were kept immersed in a solution of silver nitrate write the word equation also?

copper is placed above the silver in the ractivity series which indicates that copper is more reactive than silver . when a copper coin is kept immersed in a solution of siler nitrate ,silver from its solution will deposit on copper coin . copper slowly displaces silver from the silver nitrate solution and the colour of solution changes from colourless to blue due to the formation of copper nitrate . the copper coin will disappear and silver will percipate out .
